Philadelphia Man to Stand Trial for Allegedly Possessing Meth, Cocaine

DUBOIS – A Philadelphia man will stand trial for possessing both methamphetamine and cocaine.

William Patrick Donnelly, 36, was charged with manufacture/delivery/possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, dealing in proceeds of unlawful acts, criminal use of communication facility, two counts of intentional possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and deliver/intent to deliver drug paraphernalia after he allegedly sold meth to a confidential informant in DuBois on June 1.

After a preliminary hearing Friday, all charges were held to court by District Judge Michael Morris. Donnelly is in the county jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.

According to the affidavit of probable cause, the informant told police he/she could purchase 3.5 grams of meth or an “eight ball of meth” from Donnelly.

The informant arranged a controlled purchase at a Locust Street location. At that site, Donnelly was seen by law enforcement entering the informant’s vehicle.

Shortly after, he exited the car and entered a residence. The informant let the investigators know the transaction was complete.

The informant told police that Donnelly weighed the crystallized rock-like substance while he was in the informant’s vehicle.

Officers went to the residence where they made contact with Donnelly when he answered the door. He was immediately taken into custody.

Donnelly allegedly had two large sandwich style plastic bags in his right rear pocket. One contained suspected meth and the other was thought to be cocaine.

They also found he had a small electronic scale, numerous small plastic bags and the $280 used by the informant to purchase the meth, according to the report.
